Although most modern pickup trucks drive just as easily as a car, there's often a change of attitude when someone climbs up into an F-150, Silverado or another model and gets behind the wheel. They feel more capable, knowing that their bigger vehicle can get jobs done that a typical car couldn't even begin to handle. They look down on other cars with just a little bit of pity, wondering if the drivers of those vehicles even know what they're missing. People who drive trucks — for a living or just because they love them — can feel a bond with each other.
And, as with other groups, people sharing that bond — a brother and sisterhood of truck driving — develop their own language. Do you think you know enough about that world to pass a test about that language?
Pickup trucks can range in size from compact vehicles to heavy-duty monsters, depending on the job the driver needs to do. Each vehicle has its strengths and drawbacks, and drivers over the years have developed their own colorful language to communicate with each other. Some of these terms might sound self-explanatory, but others have a story behind them.
